well I found one that would work to get me to freeze on the appleserverworksata. The kernel that works is the mach_kernel.test7, but (I'm pretty sure) the modbin_kernel from the modcd gets me to stick at that same spot.

I honestly can't think of why launchd is not executing...


Look up "AMD FX-4100 10.6.8" w/out the quotes and see what you come up with. Reduce the clock speed to normal if you haven't already (it's important).

Legacy Kernel 10.8.0 V2 is crucial to getting up to 10.6.8.


I haven't over-clocked since the K7 series of AMD, but, the highest hurdle to cross was the FSB getting too charged up for the PCI devices to operate properly, it's a pain trying to synchronize memory to a hot bus, so, things tend to get out of balance. Just when you think everything is smooth sailing, an oil tanker comes around and runs you over. I don't know if HT presents the same problems or not though.


I understand there have been some strides in the OC world though. Still, over powering the CPU core can present problems all its own.


From what I have gathered recently 'Cool'n'Quiet' could also be a problem for getting the hack running.


There are only a handful of 'Bulldozer' OSXers out there right now. If you get yours running after an update, you are way ahead. I'm not sure any of them are as far as you are now.


Good Work!

Ok so I turned off the OC. turned off my custom pstates. back to 3.6 ghz. and HOLY DAMN OSX IS SLOW NOW!!!! It seriously dropped almost half on it's load speed. still no difference on being able to use the legacy kernel 10.8. Just restarts. I am wondering if it has anything to do with the CPU Instructions that my CPU has. Not only do I have sse and sse2 but I also have sse3 ssse3 sse4.1 & sse4.2


I don't know anything about that but from what I have gathered is AMD's don't support anything higher than sse2 and intel is sse3 and ssse3 all the way. So could this be part of why I can only use the modbin_kernel?


I know the bulldozer architecture is different then any other AMD cpu out there.


As for overclocking I didn't even have to change my voltage. I can change the multiplier in my bios and over clock to 4.7ghz without adjusting the voltage and no bugs. but it gets hot after 4.5ghz. This chip can be OC'd to 8Ghz. But I will never attempt that.


I also think my biggest problem is that my motherboard is a NB990FX and SB950


EDIT: I deleted both kexts for the AppleIntelCpuPower...whatever and it still shows right before it loads the desktop that

AppleIntelPower........ is incomplete or unsupported

My Athlon 64x2 supports SSE3 while my Athlon 64 3200+ does not.


The GUI on the 3200+ is whacked and shows lines through anything shaped like an oval--like the search window has a line by the magnifier icon. Also, when using Cover Flow, the stock icons look like balloons with dirt smeared all over them. Weird.


I guess it's down to the SSE3 emulation not quite working right. Maybe my {censored} NV 6200--Dunno?


I still don't understand the conflict with the Legacy Kernel you're having.

Modbin never worked for my AMD's but legacy always worked like a charm.

it does the same thing as every kernel except modbin. So there is something in that kernel that is not in any of the other ones. (sorry for being captain obvious) :)

I never thought it was unusual for AMDs to have SSE3/SSSE3/SSE4? Particularly newer models?


Do you boot with arch=i386? I believe the legacy kernels only support 32-bit (i386). You can force a 64-bit userspace later, but try booting with arch=i386 and the legacy kernel and see if that makes a difference.

ok booting with arch=i386 doesn't help, the only way I have found to not get it to reset is to use busratio=18 (cause my busratio is 18 at factory speed) and I get this KPpost-966952-0-70650500-1332603763_thumb.jpg

Alright so time to update you guys.


First off I got the DVD to work by turning off combined ide mode in bios. Easy fix.


Updated to 10.6.8 with the modbin_kernel. Yes it does work past 10.6.4


Flashed my Asus 6770 Radeon to a 5770 and got qe/ci working, at least i have the translucent bar and front page and video doesn't crash now. Still only shows a ati 5000 for the card but oh well I'll do more research.


And I can boot off the HDD's just for some reason I have to switch what HDD boots in my bios cause the Mac HDD can't load win 7 and the disc can't fix it. and i can't load osx from the windows part.

Whatever it shows for graphics is purely cosmetic. :)


Now are both OS'es on the same HDD?

no, here is how I got it.


Hd 0,2 SL 10.6.8 stable

HD 0,3 SL 10.7.2 experimental. We trying.

Hd 1,2 Windows 7

Hd 1,3 Data Drive

Hd 1,4-6 Linux (cause it has 3 partitions)

HD 2,2 Windows 8


If I have the HD 0 which is my samsung set to boot I can run sl but when I try to boot windows it says I need to put in the windows install disc, so I try and it says it is not compatiable with this version.

If I put HD 1 as my boot, I can boot windows 7, 8 and linux, just not osx.

Download EasyBCD on Windows 7 and add a Mac selection to the Windows Boot Loader.

      Hi, i can someone help me with installing mac OS Mojave on my HP ENVY - 15-as102na?
      I have an imac to use for setting up my usb & installing MacOS Mojave.There are various kext files etc that i'm not sure about and need some help as some are hardware specific.
      I tried previously but got stuck on an apple logo and couldn't get past that, and tried today and had problems with Clover.
      Once i get mac os on my 128gb m.2 ssd ( which i'll upgrade to either a 256gb or 512gb depending on how well this hackintosh works)
      I have a free 2.5" inch hdd bay where i'd like to install windows on in the future.
      I think i may have to replace my wireless card ( based on a few google results) which i'm fine with as long as i can see it working without just so i know i won't waste money
      Cpu: i5 7200u
      GPU: HD 620
      8GB ram
      Wifi card- Intel Wireless 7265 ( Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) )

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Pro and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware
      8700k, 9600k, 9700k, 9900k
      RX 560, 570, 580, 590, Vega 56, Vega 64, Radion VII
      (If you have success with any different CPU or GPU's then please do let me know)
      There Is No Better Guide Then The One That @glasgood Has Already Written So Just Follow He's Guide For a Perfect Install.

      ADDITIONAL DSDT's  (A big thanks to @MaLd0n for compiling these extra DSDT's)
      If your using a Vega 56/64 or Radion VII then use this DSDT (already installed in my EFI)

      (If you want a perfect setup then getting your own patched DSDT made would be the best thing to do, Mine will work perfectly fine but different hardware no matter how small a change it is can tend to have some sort of effect on the DSDT and your setup)

      Can someone help me fix reboot issue? Actually it reboots, but sometimes the hackintosh just hangs with screen off. Here is the Extra folder containing org.chameleon.boot.plist. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MX8-DpQk9kaRUfjPcToxf-ElWh-bN6EY?usp=sharing  and the spec of the PC. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1NlcUNK5DBzJFxeFeuyt92eRjQqwO5T32?usp=sharing Can someone look at it? I might be doing something wrong. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
